Excerpt from The New-York Journal of Medicine, and the Collateral Sciences, 1854, Vol. 12
With this number we commence the Twenty-second Volume (twelfth of the New Series) of the new-york journal or medicine and the Cous'rsnan Sermons; and, in doing so, we embrace the opportunity od'sted of assuring our readers and contributors of the increasing pros parity of the work. In the history of medical periodical literature in this city, we doubt if an instance can be found where so much success, under so many embarrassing circumstances, has attended the develop ment of a work. Based upon the only foundation which can here on sure success, an unreserved and honorable independence, its incep tion and growth thus far has been healthy, as is evidenced in a steadily increasing inquiry at home and abroad for the work, and a list of con tributors second to no similar work published in this country. It is not for us to say whether the increasing patronage is owing to the earnest devotion of the editors and contributors to its interests, or to the peculiar advantages which it enjoys, coming 'as it does from the metropolis of America, or to all of these circumstances combined; but this much we can say, that the conciousness that the works meets with the approbation of those for whom it is intended, shall continue to throw around it that zeal and devotion which shall sustain, if not in crease its reputation as a truthful mirror of the progress of practical medicine and surgery.
